Wasted Words

This song is by The Allman Brothers Band and appears…

Original video
Can you tell me, tell me friend, just exactly where I've been?
Is that so much to ask? I'll pay you back, no matter what the task
You seem really sure about somethin’, I don't know
Take that load off, looks like your chest's about to go
Your wasted words already been heard, are you really God, yes or no?

Well, all day and half the night you're walkin' round lookin' such a fright
Lord, Is it me or is it you? I'll make a wager and I hope to lose
Time's gone, looks like Rome is about to fall, surely ‘bout to fall
Next time take the elevator, please don't crawl
Your wasted words, so absurd, are you really Satan, yes or no?

Well, I ain't no saint and you sure as hell ain't no savior
Every other Christmas I would practice good behavior
That was then, this is now, don't ask me to be Mister Clean
'cause baby, I don't know how
Ring my phone about ten more times, we will see
Find that broke down line and let it be
Your wasted words will never be heard, go on home baby and watch it on TV

Weekday soapbox speciality, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout now
By the way, this song's for you, sincerely me
